Porridge and bits...
« on: November 13, 2017, 07:37 »
Lillileaf has started a post about the qualities of peanut butter, and this was also mentioned some time ago, when even Nutella was plonked in as well, as the general consensus was that a digestive biscuit was well improved by such a delicacy!

But hey, it's porridge season now and Comfreypatch mentions putting a spoonful in as well! Wow, that sounds fabulous, I've never thought of that one!

Here's our 'additives' - sultanas and flaked almonds, as well as salt and butter of course!

What's yours?

I have grated apple, a pinch of cinnamon plus a little honey if the apple isn't a sweet variety, in my parritch!

Ha ha ha, Mum, you are really Mrs Fitzgibbon, and I claim my five Scottish Pounds!

Like the idea of cinnamon too, have you tried ginger? (I haven't mind you).

Now that's a splendid mix, Snows!

I have to confess that due to the vagaries of our electric rings, we use a microwave mix, but it's done in a few minutes, and also heats up the sultanas so they burn your face off...

A warning about cinnamon abuse , users get to need more and more ! :)

Had slices of crystalised ginger in the porridge many times !
I have a tub of crystallised ginger secreted in the kitchen for emergency sugar fixes when there are no sweets or biscuits in the house.

I kid myself it's really healthy ! :)

quarter up to half a teaspoon of ground cardamom seeds in the mix at the start and a really light dusting of fresh grated nutmeg on serving.   Decadence in a breakfast bowl.

We use Stringers organic oats bought from the farm shop or farmers market. Always made in a pan, on the stove using whole milk - never water - plus a pinch of salt.  Served in our house with golden syrup!
